Company Announcement

Out of an abundance of caution, today Claire’s Stores, Inc., announced a voluntary recall of three cosmetic products: Claire’s Eye Shadows, Claire’s Compact Powder and Claire’s Contour Palette. We initiated this voluntary recall after testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicated the possible presence of asbestos fibers in product samples from one lot of each product. Inhalation of asbestos over time has been linked to serious adverse health consequences.

The products are no longer available in our stores, but may still be in the homes of consumers. The SKUs/Lots being recalled are:

  • Claire's Eyeshadows, UPC #888711847165, SKU #84716, Lot No. 08/17
  • Claire's Compact Powder, UPC #888711839153, SKU #83915, Lot No. 07/15
  • Claire's Contour Palette, UPC #888711401947, SKU #40194, Lot No. 04/17

The SKUs and UPCs can be found on the price tickets affixed to the products, and all batch numbers are shown on the back panels below the ingredient lists.

All three products were offered for sale between October 2016 and March 2019 and have been removed from the marketplace. They were sold in Claire's stores nationwide and on www.claires.com. Any consumers who have purchased these products should discontinue use and return them to a Claire’s store for a full refund.

To date, Claire’s is not aware of any adverse reactions, injuries or illness caused by the possible presence of asbestos in the recalled products. Claire’s continues to have confidence in the safety and composition of its products and is taking these actions out of an abundance of caution. We are working with FDA to ensure the agency and our customers share that confidence.

Claire’s understands many parents trust and expect us to hold the cosmetics purchased by and for their children to the highest possible safety standards. In the last year, Claire’s switched to talc-free manufacturing for all its cosmetics.

Consumers with questions may contact Claire’s at 800-252-4737, option 2, from 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m. EDT.
